Subject: Cute name, so so movie.
A pretty standard "what's what" of what you can do with petroleum. Rather than list oil and petroleum's many benefits to society, the filmmakers seem to be locked on listing every single item you can make with petroleum, which becomes mind numbing after awhile. But I did like the bedoir and what happens to the woman at the bedoir when all the things made of petroleum fly off. Bye bye Mr Hairbrush! See ya Mr Mirror! When the robe comes flying off as well, I had a good laugh.
